Today’s Scripture: 2 Timothy 2
Read it online at the Bible Gateway: (NIV) (NASB) (KJV) (The Message)

“Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; but blessed is he who keeps the law”. – Proverbs 29:18

There are many meanings of the word vision. For instance, vision can mean the object of imagination. But vision also can mean unusual discernment or foresight. Based on that, a visionary is a person who has a picture of what can happen in the future and is working hard to bring it about.

Dawson Trotman’s vision was to see God use the ordinary child of God to make an impact in the lives of others. What made his vision powerful was that he was living proof it could be done. He wasn’t a theologian or a scholar; he was a truck driver. And yet he was instrumental in bringing literally thousands of people to Christ and seeing them grow as disciples.

The heart of Daws’ vision came from a man who lived twenty centuries before him–the apostle Paul–and is stated in 2 Timothy 2:2: “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.” Paul’s vision was that every person who knew Christ would tell others how to come to Christ. And then they would stick with their new converts to teach them the basics of living the Christian life. The result was a plan to multiply generations of Christians who would keep sharing the faith with others.

The Great Commission of Christ is a vision that continues to capture the hearts and lives of men and women around the world. Do you have the vision? God wants to open your eyes to see the people around you as they are, and as they can be in Him.

Prayer

Lord, let me see the world through Your eyes. Amen.
